> A 2x sun box vs a 2x PC has in my experience gone to the sun box.
In 3 years of doing MySQL support, I have never logged in to a Sparc with any
number of CPUs that could outperform the top end fairly low priced one CPU AMD
on a multi-threaded benchmark of repeated random indexed selects of one record.
All Sparcs did scale nearly perfectly, though, but that scalability was just not
enough to reach the sheer power of a fast AMD.
